    circumcision is the symbolic substitute to castration, a punishment which the primeval father dealt his sons long ago out of the fullness of his power.

    Many years ago, “Not the Jewish Press” ran a column asking infants to share their feelings about their bris. As I recall, Randolph “Skippy” Cohen, who looked to be about 6 months old and who hailed from the well-to-do Upper East Side of Manhattan, was quoted as saying, “Some guy was coming at me with a knife. I wanted to give him all my money, but I didn’t have any.” I never forgot that. I guess that’s how all us guys felt at the time. Then suddenly we’re getting cut. Thank heavens I have no recollection of it.

    BTW, Shmarya, didn’t I see Hamodia newspaper report this week about a rabbinical conference about bris milah held in New York recently? Front page. And you didn’t cover it for the Yated? What’s your take on it?

    Do you think that something in the air is changing? I mean all this discussion around the Brit, MBP controversy, makes me start to think, could it be that this important covenant will be put further into question than what we anticipated at first?

    I don’t know much about it. I presume it is another attempt at “protecting Bris Milah” from the “attack” of the secular and MO – in other words, BS.

    Dovid, is it your thought that you can see with your naked eyes if there are germs on the lips of those refined people?

    how so ?
    sheneemar :
    יז עֵינַיִם רָמוֹת, לְשׁוֹן שָׁקֶר; וְיָדַיִם, שֹׁפְכוֹת דָּם-נָקִי.
    יח לֵב–חֹרֵשׁ, מַחְשְׁבוֹת אָוֶן; רַגְלַיִם מְמַהֲרוֹת, לָרוּץ לָרָעָה.
    יט יָפִיחַ כְּזָבִים, עֵד שָׁקֶר; וּמְשַׁלֵּחַ מְדָנִים, בֵּין אַחִים.
